    Last week we shared with you that Google's Translate App turned 1 Year old and received a new feature called Conversation Mode. Above we have a video of this in action. It obviously needs a lot of work, but is still impressive to say the least. We really are seeing the painful birth of a 'Star Trek-like' universal translator... at least for languages that you program it with. It will probably take a tiny bit of time for us to develop an algorithm that can instantly learn new languages. ;)

    I've played around with it the past few days. It seems to have a lot of trouble working properly when there is any background noise.
